A Praxis resource that offers free practice exams every day for a week and a free tip by email each day for a week if you sign up for it.
The Praxis Exam for Speech Language Pathology is the national exam that you must pass in order to become a certified speech language pathologist. The test consists of 120 multiple choice questions and covers an array of topics (psychometrics/research/professional issues, audiology/hearing, speech disorders, neurogenic disorders, clinical management,basic human communication processes, phonological and language disorders). Typically it is recommended to wait and take the test closer to the end of your second year in graduate school because by then most of the topics covered should be familiar to the test taker.
